The Talent Board Welcomes HireRight As Sponsor Of The Candidate Experience Awards

SAN FRANCISCO – July 12, 2011 – The Talent Board, a non-profit organization focused on the elevation and promotion of a quality candidate experience, today announced that HireRight, an award-winning provider of employment background screening, drug screening and employment eligibility solutions, is sponsoring the Candidate Experience Awards.

The Candidate Experience award competition consists of three survey rounds that are designed to evaluate and recognize organizations that produce outstanding candidate experiences. Round one is comprised of a 40-question survey that is designed to capture and evaluate the nominated company's recruitment processes and practices driving the candidate experience. The submission deadline for this phase of the award process is July 15, 2011. The Award is designed for North American companies and it is free for all participating companies.

The outcome of the first round is the awarding of "Candidate Experience" designation to those organizations that meet a standard of candidate experience. Qualified entrants have the option of advancing to round two of the competition, which involves access to a sampling of 2011 employment candidates using online survey tools. Based on the results, finalists will advance to round three, which involves an interview by a panel of judges who will make the determination regarding the winners.  All Candidate Experience winners will be celebrated at a banquet ceremony held during the 2011 HR Technology Conference in Las Vegas.
